Irrespective of the veracity, or otherwise, of Corbyn's unredacted documents; how is it physically possible to "sell" the NHS?Jeremy Corbyn says Labour has 'obtained' 451 pages of government documents which he says prove the NHS is 'up for sale' in trade talks with the US.— Jack Maidment (@jrmaidment) November 27, 2019
The NHS doesn't make anything, why on earth would anyone want to buy it?

Naz Shah says: "I'm not sure. My understanding of Jeremy is he's been an anti-racism campaign all his life. Understanding anti-semitism is something he does understand."

Farage confirmed his Brexit candidates would not stand in the 317 seats won by the Tories at the last election.
However, he is publicly claiming that Brexit will stand in Labour seats, which will of course split the Tory vote and damage their chances of taking them from Labour.
Currently Farage is demanding that the Tories stand aside in these seats. Given that will clearly not happen, it is hoped that he will back down further and not stand in all Labour seats.

Having threatened to field 500 BXP candidates in the general election (which will split the Tory vote and usher in Corbyn) Farage decided not to stand himself.
It is a tad unusual for a leader of an alleged political party to not stand for election.
So what's going on here?
1 Farage has stood for parliament 7 times, and lost on each occasion. He knows he has FA chance of being elected.
2 He wants to keep his radio show, standing will mean he would not be on air as much as his ego wants.
3 Splitting the Tory vote will ensure Corbyn wins and that Brexit never happens. This split esnures that Farage stays on the EU gravy train as an MEP, it also ensures he can continue to publicly call for the UK to leave the EU.
In short, Farage's "policy" is based on greed and ego.
